The Tale of the Three Whisperers



Once upon a time, there were three wise siblings. The eldest is Doubt, followed by his two younger brothers; Mind and Heart. Heart was so loved by his two elder brothers that whatever Doubt and Mind did, it would always narrowed down to one resolution : to protect Heart.

But most of the time, Heart had a decision of his own. He knew all along that he was fragile and breakable, but Heart was the type of person to put others first before him. He didn't mind breaking, as long as the others can be whole. This noble act is the very hammer that crush him every single time.

Then one day, a man came to the three wise siblings to seek for an advice.

The million-dollar question : Should I?

Doubt whispers ; no.
You'll stumble and fall in the middle of the road
You'll get confused in the intersections
You'll scrape your knee on the tarmac of difficulty, and you won't have the strength to make it to the end.
You'll break Heart, and you cannot bear the anogy that comes with it.
The price is too unaffordable.
No. Doubt whispers again.

Mind whispers ; no.
Doubt could be right,
All these difficulties ahead of you,
will exceed your breaking point.
And I know yourself well, hitherto it is the mind who controls you.
Don't risk an obvious failure.
I won't risk Heart, so precious
but carries so much pain in the cracks of his vessels.
That once Heart breaks, the pain unleashed will of course weight you down on you next.
No. Mind whispers again.

But...
Heart whispers : yes.
Don't you remember me, young man?
I am so used to be broken.
All your life has been a journey to search to search for the missing pieces of me.
Give it a try, my friend.
You'll either find the pieces of me, or
you'll break me down even further.
I don't mind both.

Tell my beloved brothers that no matter how hard they try to protect me -
The Heart is meant to wound and heal.
And I have a little friend right here to strengthen me;
The one you call Hope.

Now you know why some decisions you make are completely against your mind and doubt? Yes, blame Heart. Heart can be a little bitch, so persuasive, so irresistible but in the end it is Heart that you will follow.

Because Heart is your very own existence, your very own core, your very own soul's door.
